1977 Alembic Series 1. long scale version with the rare, original Alembic blue case and the original specification sheet from Alembic dated September 2nd 1977 signed by all the big players in the company including Rick Turner. It has a big chambered body with the K point lovingly hand crafted and built by all the best that Alembic had in 1977. Maple/Amaranth neck, Mahogany body .. Shedua top and back, Zebrawood veneers, ebony fingerboard, which is perfectly flat. Original pots and pickups. Serial number on the end of the headstock is 77 846. Weight 11lbs. Fully set up with a lovely playing action by my technician Chris Ward. It's in excellent condition overall although there are a few scuffs in the top mainly around the controls. The back of the body is super clean with no signs of buckle rash. The neck and headstock are also very clean, this bass has clearly been very well looked after.

The bass is all original including the case. There is no DS5 power pack supplied with the bass. It currently has a split cable which can be put into 2 amps for stereo sound and my tech has made a single stereo to mono jack to jack to allow all the functions of the bass to work.
